    Yeah, thanks to all for that. As a brandy new guitar dood, having heavy hitters comp my style is pretty cool. Gonna leave the hardware & electronics alone, she just sounds too good outta the box for me to wanna go there.

    Only real upgrade I made was DR Pure Blues strings from the stock Fenders. Wow would be an understatement. Made in USA, (NJ actually), round core, great projection & clarity.

    SIDE NOTE: I used to hit Todd Wolfe's jam in Bethlehem down your way.

    That is what’s it all about, make it your own. Maybe some wooden pickup rings?

    lol, great minds Bro. Already thinkin' about that for next string change. I'm leaning towards ebony or a dark walnut w/ some subtle detail.

    Probably a small effect on tone, too?

    Missed this thread somehow. Very nice subtle changes that change the whole look of the guitar. Love the new look.
